Product details

Lauren Jones was attempting to rob the Aboud grocery store when the owner, Ali Aboud, pulled a gun from under the counter and fired at Mr. Jones. The bullet missed Jones and struck and killed Aboud's wife, Rachel. Jones was arrested at the scene of the robbery and has pleaded guilty to robbery. No murder charges are pending against him.

The State alleges that the defendant, John Burns, planned the robbery of the grocery store and waited outside in the getaway car while Jones went inside to rob the store. The defendant has been charged with armed robbery for his alleged participation in the holdup and with felony-murder for the death of Mrs. Aboud.

This basic file offers impeachment, rehabilitation issues, and adverse examination. There are three witnesses for both the State and the defendant. A CD with exhibits is included.
